This document describes how to configure Tenable Nessus Manager for integration with the BeyondTrust PowerBroker Password Safe (BeyondTrust).

Note: BeyondTrust is only compatible with Nessus Manager. It is not compatible with Nessus Professional.

The benefits of integrating Nessus Manager with BeyondTrust include:

  • Credential updates directly in Nessus, requiring less management.
  • Reduced time and effort documenting where credentials are stored in the organizational environment.
  • Automatic enforcement of security policies in specific departments or business unit requirements, simplifying compliance.
  • Reduced risk of unsecured privileged accounts and credentials across the enterprise.
